Elaine: I am so sorry for your double loss recently, Duane & Wayne. While I don't think we ever had the opportunity to meet, we are distant relatives; I am the great-grandson of Kjerstie Kjos Nelson.

Elaine, So sorry to hear of Duane's death. I did not realize that he would pass away so close to Wayne's passing. I will try to attend the funeral or family service for Duane if I can make it. If I do not, I have good memories when Duane worked for dad on the farm. Elaine and Wesley sorry for your losses. David
